Beyond the design of a car, the single most important factor in a car’s fuel consumption has to do with what the driver has direct control over. You can improve fuel economy by using some common sense and the steps we’ll outline for you here.
Optimize a Petrol Consumption
Maintain your car. It’s simple but true–a properly maintained car will operate more efficiently, and you’ll enjoy better gas mileage. Items like fouled spark plugs, dirty air filters or clogged fuel filters will have a detrimental effect on your gas mileage. Even replacing simple parts like filters and sensors can pay off with measurable gains in efficiency. So tune up your car, and check the manual for recommended maintenance intervals.
Inflate your tires. You can improve your fuel economy by up to 3 percent simply by keeping your tires at the recommended pressure. Check your owner’s manual for the recommended air pressure.
